Stopped in after visiting Blowing Rock. Loved the concept of filling out your own menu(giving you all the time you need!) before handing it to the cashier. Very large selection to choose from to dress your burger or sandwich. After ordering they found us easily because we texted the phone number provided with our seat location.

Great place to grab a burger and fries. The sauce they make is awesome also. Plenty of inside or outside seating, Some outside seating areas has heaters so it is comfy even in the cooler mountain air.

Loved this local burger place. It was busy, but well worth it. Fun to design your own burger. Even have fresh mint in the planters to add to your Sweet Tea.

My family loves to stop by the Come Back Shack when we are in Boone. The burgers, fries, chicken tenders and milk shakes are the bomb. You can not eat anything without the Come Back sauce. If you have not eaten here you are missing out!

This place has no freezers onsite. That says it all. Everything is fresh. Great tasting burger and freshly cut fries. Yum!
